“Excellent choma”
Review of Roadhouse Grill

Reviewed 6 April 2018

With a craving for meat, we decided to visit Roadhouse. To reduce the wait time, we called ahead to order. With nyama choma, it is important to not already be hungry when you arrive, as there will always be a wait, even if pre-ordered.

With the wait aside, our friendly and efficient waitress delivered our nyama, choma chicken, mukimo, fries, spinach and kachumbari. I have to confess that the meat was excellent and all the sides freshly prepared and tasty.

Roadhouse is a bar, so if travelling with kids like us, come only for lunch and find an inside corner table away from the drunkards. Better yet, you might be smarter to order take away. Overall, fantastic meat.

We ate here specifically to get the nyama choma, roasted goat. The place itself was pretty nice, down to earth and not too fancy with lots of locals eating. The waiter was really keen for us NOT to have roasted goat, however, trying to put us off by saying we could only buy 1kg of it and that is too much for two people, trying to tell us it would take too long to cook. He suggested we had a chicken as that was already cooked, but we said we would really like the goat for two. After half an hour a chicken came out, clearly a breakdown in communication! We were so hungry by then we ate the chicken. Good job too because it took nearly 3 hours from when we arrived at the restaurant for the goat to come out!! When it did come, it was very tasty and we enjoyed it but we were very tired by then.

If you go to get roasted goat, I recommend you telephone them in the day and order it in advance.

We would go back here, but only with a pre order in place.

Ordered chicken and chips and we had to wait about an hour. Food was very overpriced as well. Not a particularly attractive place either.

Good food at a good price.... Service was a bit slower than u would expect for a choma joint, but well worth it!
